When everyone around you is catching the cycling bug, the Rapide RL3 bike is the best way to join the trend. Its lightweight alloy frame is stiff enough to transfer power straight to the road, while the carbon fibre fork eliminates nasty vibrations to increase comfort. The RL3 comes with a full Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, delivering 20 smooth shifting gears which will see you up, over and down any terrain that you encounter, while giving you enough top end speed to keep pace with your new found cycling buddies. Shifting is taken care of via integrated brakes lever/ shifters, which also activate the powerful Tektro caliper brakes, meaning that you can bring the RL3 to a controlled stop, with ease every time. Continental Ultrasport II tyres are fast rolling enough that you will need to expend very little energy keeping up your top speed, while the large 25c carcass reduces that chance of pinch punctures out on the road (provided that you follow the tyre pressure guide on the side). The Alex rims on the Rapide RL3 are tough enough to take the sort of knocks that UK road dish out, while endlessly reliable Shimano hubs not only work brilliantly, but are easy to service when they do eventually wear out or need a clean. Built in mudguard eyelets make wet weather riding a trouble free encounter and a rear rack mount means that the RL3 would also be up for a regular commute or some light touring challenges. All told, the Rapide RL3 offers you a great way to get into cycling, join the road posse and even take things a little further afield when the feeling takes you - go on, what are you waiting for?
